CREDIT INFORMATION SHEET Parents and students need to be aware that it is very important to have as many credits as possible. Students only have to have THREE credits to reach sophomore status, but they have to have ELEVEN to reach junior status, and NINETEEN credits to be a senior. In addition, they have to have TWENTY-SEVEN credits to graduate. If a student has the minimum number of credits to be a sophomore, then he or she has to pass ALL of his or her classes in order to graduate on time.

Credit Recovery is available to assist students who have fallen behind on credits, but the student has to have a minimum average of 55 to qualify for credit recovery. As students receive their first report cards of the academic year, it is very important that they realize that the midterm grade will be on their final transcript and it will affect their overall grade in the class.

If a student is failing, please encourage them to seek assistance from their classroom teacher, counselor, and/or in the instructional lab.
